On a slow day.....not sure why, we loaded up the kids and headed over to Geneva-on-the-lake. Yes, this town is as podunk as it sounds. But, highlight of the area is the Adventure Zone! It was fun to see Isla June (and all the rest of the cousins) running around having fun and just getting their energy out.
Isla June rode the merry go round with daddy. and was a little unsure about the giant horse. Not her thing. I attempted a video, but it was just a blurry mess.
|She would not look at the camera as she was a little unsure about the whole Carousel in the first place|
|Don't let this picture fool you....she did not like the ball pit. and that's ok with this germ-aphobe mother|
How can you say no to this??? Jer doesn't understand my obsession with these things.
|I totally understand if you want to steal this picture and use it as your screen saver.|

At Marina's Bridal Shower (she's marrying Jer's step-brother, Joel). It was a beautiful day at the winery and her soon-to-be mother-in-law (with a little help from the rest of us) threw her the most exquisite shower.
Can I share one more crazy story?
On the first day at the cottage, Jer was so excited to swim with the kids that her ran into the lake. And then realized that his wedding ring was gone. He hired the boys and strapped on his own goggles and spent the next 20 minutes attempting to locate the thing, but the waves were getting too big. Dejected, he confessed to me what had happened. And being the low key wife that I am, I shrugged and said, "It was bound to happen." The next day, we saw a guy with a metal detector and gave him a heads up about the ring, and he said he would keep an eye out for it; we heard nothing. The next day (now 2 days post ring loosing) Jer went for a swim in the lake. The lake was quiet, but not exactly glass like that day. 9 minutes later, he runs triumphantly up the stairs to announce that he had found his ring in waist deep water. And that's my husband.
